The name is a play on “Bye Felicia,” a meme used to signify that someone has left a party, and they won’t be missed.
Since creating it Monday of last week, Tweten has received more than two dozen submissions.
But after connecting with thousands of women via my Facebook page and hearing their tales of missed dates, mixed messages, and misunderstood expectations, the horror stories seem to outnumber any purported success rate by a very wide margin. Don't we all hear how great the apps and sites are? You answer a few questions and then get to meet someone who is (supposedly) a great match.
Bye Felipe began "three weeks ago" after a friend posted a screenshot of a hostile message she received on Ok Cupid to Facebook.
It's so simple in its design and yet we imagine it'll be so damn effective.19-year-old California college student Lori Zalabak just downloaded Tinder last week, and on her very first day using the dating app, this guy used a sophisticated and gentleman-like approach to court this young lady. So she made sure to find the one women who would be very interested to see what this guy was doing on his phone... She wrote in the message: "I recently downloaded the 'dating' app called tinder, where I got matched with your son, unfortunately I was not pleased with his word choice with me and how he spoke to me.
They should be publicly shamed.”Other women on the Facebook thread agreed, saying they had similar experiences and wanted to see the perpetrators punished in some way, like through a public Instagram account. ”That Instagram account became Bye Felipe, Tweten’s crowdsourced menagerie of mankind’s worst specimens.Very rarely was anything of substance shared there and more or less, everyone had the same opportunity to meet and connect with others.The interactions were unique because of the anonymity given by using My Space.Tweten posted an aggressive note she had recently received from a man who had sent her the same Ok Cupid line three times in the course of a month, asking her if she’d like to chat.After ignoring it repeatedly, Tweten finally wrote back, “No.”His response: “WHY THE FUCK NOT? “If we don't respond, they come back and say, ‘you're a whore.’ If we do respond, we get yelled at and called names.
